San Francisco’s famous Anchor Porter brand is made in one of the smallest and most traditional breweries in the world by the brewers of Anchor Steam Beer. Our old-fashioned Porter is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. We use 100% malted barley, generous amounts of fresh, whole hops, entirely natural carbonation and a simple, natural brewing process which is like no other in the world. The deep black color, the thick, creamy head and the intensely rich flavor of Anchor Porter, made in San Francisco since 1974, have earned this delicious and unique brew a worldwide reputation for outstanding quality. It is aesthetically pleasing and wholly superior in every respect.

Porter squisita, decisamente sopra la media, con note intense di cioccolato, caffé, malti tostati e estremamente piacevole da bere. Una volta su questi lidi californiani, non puoi che gettare l’ancora e restarci!!

Very nice Porter. Not very strong but with the right amount of coffee. The roasted malt prevails over the coffee flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 355 ml bottle @ Ukkometso
Black beer with huge blonde cloudy head. Aroma has surprisingly lots of dark fruits up front, like a dubbel. Underneath are more typical porter aromas like roasted malts, licorice and loafy bread. Flavor is loafy bready, roasty and licoricy with dark fruits and apple sidenotes. Has medium bitterness on the finish, leaves a licoricy aftertaste for a good while. Palate is medium full and soft with a medium strong carbonation. Good porter with interesting dark fruity notes. Enjoyable like this but could work even better if it was a bit fuller.

En bouteille servi dans un verre de chez Duvel. Belle robe noire, mousse crémeuse, on sent le goût de graines torréfiés. Pour une Porter le goût est bien rond, idéal pour commencer avec ce type de bière.

MonsterMagnet (67) - NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, hints of dark fruits. Taste expands on this with vanilla, wood and hints of citrus. Smooth, light-medium body, medium bitter, long dark chocolate and vanilla aftertaste. Lovely brew!

Tastes of coffee, molasses, Tootsie roll, and maybe a barely detectable hint of orange. A little thin for a porter, but otherwise very good
